Stenciled Makeup Pouches

An simple-to-craft makeup pouch that can easily pass as store-bought? We can't make this stuff up.

  1. Cut out the stencil of your choice and adhere it to your surface with a little stencil tape.

  2. Mix Sterling paint with fabric medium. Load your brush with a little paint and dab off excess onto a scrap piece of paper or paper towel.

  3. Begin stenciling by pouncing the brush over the stencil in an up and down motion.

  4. Repeat, following the guides and lining up the pattern, until the pattern is complete.

  5. To create the off-set printing effect, set stencil down a little off to the side from the first color, repeat steps 2-4 with the next paint color and continue stenciling.
